Leo’s Toy Box
As a spoiled puppy, Leo of course has his own toy box. It’s filled with his favorite tug ropes, squeaky squirrels, his blanket, and whatever else he’s acquired over the past couple years. Since we’ve been working from home, I’ve been able to pick up on Leo’s funny behaviors. Every morning, after I get settled into my work day, Leo likes to rummage through his toy box picking the perfect toy.
Throughout the rest of the day he’ll frequently return to his toy box and grab another toy to play around with. Lately he has conveniently started grabbing squeaky toys right before I’m about to dial into a meeting. He also loves to present me with a toy a couple times throughout the day when he wants some attention.
In the evenings when the TV gets turned on, Leo will grab his special birthday cake toy he received on his 1st birthday, trigger the noise and prance around the apartment. So, in our little apartment, it’s Leo’s birthday every day and we hear the birthday tune at the minimum 6 times a night. It really is impressive how long those batteries have lasted on that toy.
By the end of the night the entire apartment is usually littered with toys, which in Leo’s eyes is a job well done. In order to keep the house clean (and avoid stepping on a squeaky toy in the middle of the night) we put all the toys back in the box and the next morning it all starts over again.
